many others from our committee on information technology, spur, our different various city departments, really trying to improve on what we've done already. back in 2009 then mayor gavin newsome to the light of all of us had introduced that we ought to really establish some guidelines to open up our city's data. and in the year later, the board, less legislation, the first open data legislation in san francisco that made us cutting edge throughout the country, the first to come out and say to everybody in the public, to people who wanted to create businesses, wanted to look at the city with kind of an open invitation to involve themselves with what the city had. and part of that really neat understanding was that we were holding onto so much of our own data in our own silos with our own very focused obligations that we had, and not realizing that if we had released that data to the public, we could really allow them to help us create even more efficient government, along with some very good entrepreneurial efforts that are reflected in today's announcements and some of our partners tha
city. i'm proud that working with the trades units and we have consistently meet and exceeding our goals of placing people on projects. thank you commissioner. last summer we provided more than 5 thousand summer jobs for young people in partnership with the united people in the bay. we also were involved in other events that will place the youth of this city in jobs. in fact, the first s f young people are graduating. in a disversus community not everyone wants to work in construction jobs. working with our workforce nonprofits like j v s and young community developers and we need to expand them. next week i'm looking forward to attending the cad any to see all the folks who are graduating. our industry contributes good paying jobs to our hospitals, universities and medical firms. and finally, to fully insure that our economic recovery reaches every people in the community we must join with our democrat leader president obama and shout immigration reform for our country this year. we're - we are a city of imgranite and we know that some are fathers and mothers and daughters and son
was happy to work with mayor newsome to pass our city's first open data ordinance and at that point we were a national leader in the open data movement. unfortunately we have fallen a bit behind. at this time we have about 500 city maintained data sets, but there are literally thousands of data sets that we could put out to the public. we have known in recent years that the release of government data and improved partnership between government and citizens has led to many successes at improving government. we know this is good for open government. this is to help provide more information to the press, to the public, and really ensure that as we analyze our government data, this is leading to innovations throughout our communities. i want to just take a moment because some of our colleagues have asked me, what type of data are we talking about? let me give three examples of things that i think we could really move forward on. first has to do with rec and park. four years ago the very first meeting i had with now director phil beginsberg, i asked him when the city was going to have an online
force development. we all know our city's unemployment rate has been an encouraging indicator of our knowledge base and technology driven economy. but we've all witnessed the reality of a growing gap between the skill sets and the jobs of many residents in our city. and this has been particularly profound for san franciscans who because of challenges in educational or literacy opportunities live in an english proficiency, disabilities or their status as an ex offender, folks have not been able to get jobs in the economy that we have in san francisco. ~ in our city, we have as i think you all know, a very significant network of federal, state, and locally funded work force development programs. and, in fact, the last time the budget analyst did an audit, these programs were estimated to cost close to $30 million. in 2006-2007, the then board of supervisors working with the mayor authorized the creation under the office of -- the creation of the office of work force development which was supposed to serve as the local oversight and policy making body for this vast network. in recent mo
by the bank of america this would not have been possible without you. to our partners the city and port of san francisco and the agencies that approved this project unanimously to bring it here. six different boards and six unanimous votes. >> and finally who welcomed us and even this fabulous institution across the street, dan, thank you. our founder, frank openhimer when he started the exporatorium created something unlike it in the rest of the we woulder. it led to the movement of thousand of similar institutions since that time and never really wanted to call it a museum and he searched for a different word and it was our neighborhood across the street, who sat down with frank to come up with the word exporatorium. but to us, the staff, we really believe that it is this wonderful, zany public, learning laboratory. and where we get to invent and create things all of the time and now we have this beautiful new platform of which to do that work. but it took my predecessor who is also here today, a french physicist. to boldly declare that it is not a place, but an idea, an idea and way of thin
dough bread to assure myself that it was happening in our city. it takes strong personalities, it takes incredible amount of effort to depoliticized these issues. by the way, when you hear the real stories and they will probably come out, somebody will leak something, there was more than one time where everybody felt justified in walking away and i'm glad they found reasons to come back because these are important for our city and the needs of this area. it would not have been done without the board of supervisors and gaining the insight lou was creating for us. i would like to let the supervisor speak to what their passion was in keeping their focus together on it, but to say to you that it's an incredible time for the city. these are major health care institutions that we have. this will lead to hundreds of jobs for the city, permanent, long-term jobs, but ultimately, it will be another great brick in the whole health we have to share in this effort to do so and i'm so happy not only the do this but acknowledge the importance of our board having direction conversations engaged in thi
francisco. >> thank you, thank you joaquin, thank you, welcome to our orange city hall. i want to welcome everybody here this fourthth animal america arab month of separation and it's my pleasure to join us here and many of us know that we are such a lucky city, and we are lucky because people around their world make their way to fraction, find hopey until the city they know that we celebrate our diversity and find strength in the different cultures that pretend together and now, i ask you also to bring me talent from the arab america communities to make me and help me lune run the city. yes, it's incredible. union, i think i can talk about how wonderful diversity is, but we have to get the talent from our communities to represent all of the different thing that we do in the city. and you know, tonight, even though there is something called a baseball game out there, but these wonderful events that we have in the city whether it's america's cup whether it's fleet week, whether it's the 49ers playing or the giants playing, even eventually when we land the superbowl it all board of truste

, was the beginning of our city, just a few blocks here and it is the basic of the tell graph hill and it started as agricultural and fishing village, right there where down's offices are was the first fisherman's wharf. >> and it is just amazing to see how it has transformed. of course, the thing that really set the city on fire was the gold rush and in the words of one historian, the gold rush catapulted our little city of san francisco into a far greater world ride prestige and enviable position than the tiny population really deserved and we have been in that role ever since and our port has evolved with the city as we welcomed new and improved ways of moving not from what used to be a pier for substanence but something that is important to the city as food was and that is innovation and quality of life. and so i can't think of a project that epitomizes that more than the exporatorium like our city and port has continuously evolved and expand and rebuilt and on behave of the port commissioners who will raise their hands and be recognized. >> it is my honor to welcome the exporatorium as the p

this supreme court does. i know our city attorney is actually in dc to at least a part of the hearing and i know that his team and we collectively as a city elected family must make sure that we continue to fight. the second point today is i would like to, i'm introducing a hearing request on a very important issue which we as a city and a country to have deal with and that is the implementation of the affordable care act. so i'm calling for a hearing on how the department of public health is planning to implement the affordable care act here in san francisco. the hearing will look into what implications the implementation will have for the san francisco program and the ordinance that was by supervisor aaron oh. we know for instance that the undocumented population is left out of coverage by the affordable care act so we need to know what that means for the city and county of san francisco. i know besides what needs to happen within the city of government, we have to talk about how we work with other health care institutions, whether it's the clinic consortium and other hospitals and i know

forced to pay interest rates that are currently double the market interest rates here in our is city and across our country. and to provide a path for them for secure ownership here in our city. second of all, to protect tenants in tic buildings. it is very important to supervisor wiener and i when we introduced this legislation, we [speaker not understood] tenant protections in tic buildings by providing lifetime leases and also providing a pool of money for affordable housing if here in our city. it is one of san francisco's greatest challenges and this legislation will create a large pool of capital for affordable housing projects here in san francisco. ~ legislation that would satisfy these goals and principle i would support. as a former tic owner, i understand the issues involved with these buildings and the toll it takes on middle income families here in our city, and i want to do everything possible to support them. in terms of the amendments to the legislation that are being offered today, i just received them a short while ago. so, i really have not had the opportunity to w

have invested in our city. so the year of 20 if we will, was about getting everything done. and when we did that, we were complimented by an unemployment rate that went in the last two years from 9.6% to as of december, 6.5% one of the lowest in the whole state of california that meant that 31,000 people got jobs in san francisco putting a lot more people back to work. today, when we run around our city, or ride around it or walk around it, you can count 26 criterions in the skyline of san francisco. that means thousands of good construction jobs, all residents being a portion of those constructions from the central subway to the new crudes ship terminal to the trans bay terminal that you see being constructed and the pictures of the new tour the tal tallest building west of the mississippi will be under construction shortly. nearly 11 million square feet of commercial office space was leashed out last year and 11 million is equivalent to 20 trans america buildings. half of which belong to the technology company that is have started here grown here and come here from other places
